NEXUS for PTSD

Question

 Question. Will submitting a NEXUS letter  for PTSD, from my VA Psychologist help my NOD if I have already submitted a Nexus from my Private Psychologist for PTSD? Thanks for any input.

Any favorable  evidence  from a Qualified Doc always helps. :)

A nexus letter can support a stressor occurred but that does not prove the stressor occurred in the military.

If you do not fall under the July 2010 PTSD criteria, you will need to prove your stressor.....

A "nexus" for PTSD claims is proof of the stressor.

Have you been formally diagnosed with PTSD by a MH professional?

But then the PTSD claim was denied?

Have yuou attached the decision here at hadit anywhere?

Hi Berta,

 

   Yes I have been diagnosed. My stressor was finally verified as my c-file now says. I was just thinking to help my NOD I would send in another NEXUS from my VA Psychiatrist. I have been diagnosed with PTSD inside the VA and by my Outside Psychologist. I claim currently reads, review of evidence in EBENIFITS.

here is an example of the current nexus , a rough copy with my information and doctors redacted.-PTSD NexUS -1.docx-PTSD NexUS -1.docx

It won't hurt but I would think your evidence is solid, since  they have verified your stressor.

I know but they also informed me they lost half of my records, which include the medical records for the stressor if that makes sense

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
